Approaching this from the standpoint of being a Marc Almond fan I give this release 5 stars. I'm not great at writing reviews, I leave that to the experts, but want to remark on and rate this outstanding release. To me it's a return to form, or perhaps more accurately a return to days gone past. I can't help but compare this to some of Marc's darker releases, the more arty or experimental releases that I've always been drawn to. I hear elements of Torment And Toreros (without the mania) and Jacques (without the french fixation) and perhaps even Violent Silence? I'm hearing this for the first time but it's bringing back memories of younger days. I'm reminiscing about the past despite this release being firmly in the present. Anyway, you get the point. Make up your own minds but to me it's a captivating release.

The title of Marc Almond's latest project -a collaboration with award-winning composer John Harle- is almost self-explanatory.
The Tyburn Tree was the gallows which were erected in 1571 outside the North East corner of Hyde Park (today's Marble Arch) and stood there for 200 odd years (although the site had been used for public execution since the late XII c). The gallows represented both a warning for those entering London from its Westernmost end and an advancement in murderous technology, as they allowed multiple executions to be carried out simultaneously (in total, over 60,000 were hung there).

The tree is here used as a symbol of London's macabre history.

''Tyburn Tree I weep for thee.." is Almond's opening line, his role of empathetic minstrel clear from the word 'go'.

The epic and cinematic ''Fortress'' is an adaptation of William Blake's poem ''London'' where Almond sounds on top form, accompanied by a rich orchestral cavalcade with dashes of Renaissance grandeur.

The story of Spring-heeled Jack -the Victorian devilish super-antihero- unfolds accompanied by scatty guitar with a heavy nod to prog rock (Harle's teenage years were spent listening to the likes of Pink Floyd and King Crimson) and is narrated by our guide with fittingly childish theatricality, somewhat reminiscent of Napoleon XIV (he of ''They're coming to take me away ha-haa").

The following track, ''My fair lady'', was inspired by Tom Pickard, the contemporary Geordie working-class poet whom Harle collaborated with 5 years ago and is a dark reinterpretation of the nursery rhyme ''London Bridge is falling down''.

Marc Almond at his best , ths is a fantastic colaboration conjuring images of the darkest London , Marc"s vocals are amazing and who better to tell and sing of the horrors of London . Accompanied by some amazing and haunting music by John Harle , can't stop playing this album loud in my car on long journeys . Pure perfection .

excellent how they put the "dark London" to music.
A bit opera - a bit goth. It's thrilling. A must have.

Very special "guide" to dark London full of haunting and lovely melodies. Fantastic collaboration, as already mentioned in some other review. Very plesed to hear these two artists together. Music thoroughly prepared, with a lot of surprising moments, but not for everyone. Highly recommended,

I find this one hard to listen to.
It's a bit too much on everything
La Almond is fab but as a whole
this record sounds a bit too manufactured
